  Blue Whale Heart Rate Can Drop to Just Two Beats Per Minute While Diving For the first time, scientists have recorded the heat rate of the biggest species of animal on Earth.Blue whales are the biggest animals on Earth, reaching between 80 and 100 feet in length. They are believed to have appeared about 1.5 million years ago. Earlier this year, researchers found evidence to suggest that baleen whales—which blue whales are a type of—evolved huge body sizes far earlier than once thought, raising questions about their role they have played in the development of ocean ecosystems.

Stocks suffered their steepest one-day drop in nearly two months , but you wouldn't have known it by looking at the blue-chip Dow Jones Industrial Average. MarketWatch' s Laura Mandaro explains why the Nasdaq and S & P 500 sold off sharply today as both posted their biggest daily declines in two

The world’ s biggest hot spots outside of China include Italy, South Korea, and Iran, where the death rate is higher The last six days saw the S & P 500 drop by 10% from its all-time high at rate faster than it ever has before Stocks had pared the day’ s losses, but are now falling back toward session lows.

The Cboe Volatility Index, which is regarded as the best fear gauge in the market, rose to 14.7 from 12.6.

Monday’s losses on the first trading day of December came after a strong performance last month. The major averages had their biggest monthly gains since June, rallying to record highs. The S&P 500 climbed 3.4% last month while the Dow advanced 3.7% and the Nasdaq rallied 4.5%.

“The trend and momentum going into December are bullish,” said Bruce Bittles, a chief investment strategist at Baird. “However, investor optimism is registering as excessive by many of the services we follow. While optimism is not euphoric, excessive investor optimism generally suggests a pause in a bull market.”

Manufacturing activity in the U.S. continued to contract last month, the Institute for Supply Management said. The ISM Manufacturing PMI dipped to 48.1 in November. That’s below an estimate of 49.4. Stocks hit their session lows after the data was released.

The Standard & Poor’ s 500 Index fell the most in more than two months amid a deepening retreat in commodities, and as investors prepare for next week’ s Federal The S & P 500 dropped 1.9 percent to 2 ,012.37 at 4 p .m. in New York, posting its first weekly drop in four and its worst since August.

The Dow fell nearly 500 points and the S & P 500 closed down 1.9 percent on Friday to 2 ,599.95 after China reported industrial output and retail sales growth Shares of Goldman Sachs fell 2 .7 percent Monday after Malaysian authorities filed criminal charges against the bank and two former partners in

“If you’re looking for a reason to sell, the ISM number certainly gave it to you,” said Art Hogan, a chief market strategist at National Securities. “The market seems like it wants to put in a short-term high here. That just means investors want to lock in some gains.”

He noted, however, that the dynamics that brought the market to record highs last month “continue to be in place”

Sentiment was also dented after President Donald Trump said China still wants to make a deal on trade, “but we’ll see what happens.” There is no clear indication of when both countries will be able to sign an agreement, and last week saw fresh tension between Washington and Beijing after Trump signed legislation supporting protesters in Hong Kong. Trump said the bill signing “doesn’t make it better.”

That comment came after Chinese state media reported Sunday that Beijing wants cancellation of tariffs for a phase one trade deal. Both sides need to reach a deal before Dec. 15. If not, additional U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods could take effect.

The S & P 500 broke below its 50-day moving average for the first time since July 5 before snapping back above the closely watched technical level.

“There’s still this cloud over the market around what’s going to happen on Dec. 15 with trade,” said Christian Fromhertz, the CEO of The Tribeca Trade Group. “This is going to have to come to a decision at some point or another whether they’re going to roll back tariffs or delay those tariffs.”

Trump also said Monday he will restore tariffs on metal imports from Brazil and Argentina. In a tweet, he said: “Brazil and Argentina have been presiding over a massive devaluation of their currencies. which is not good for our farmers. Therefore, effective immediately, I will restore the Tariffs on all Steel & Aluminum that is shipped into the U.S. from those countries.”

The percolating uncertainty around trade came despite an Axios report citing a source said Trump is expected to hold off on the additional tariffs against China in the hopes of striking a deal before year-end.
